What are your plans after high school?
After I graduate, I will be attending Arizona State University. I will be majoring in communications.
What are you looking forward to in college?
I am looking forward to the new opportunities that are ahead of me and the independence that comes with college.
What are you going to miss the most about high school?
I am going to miss the people I have met and the opportunities I have been given. In high school, I got the chance to find the things that I love. It really helped me get a better vision for what I want my future to look like.
What is one memory you have from Metea?
During my junior year, my friend Truman and I wrote a play for Winter Scenes called “Time Boggler.” I got to tap into my creative outlet and create something I will remember forever. It was a really great opportunity, and I had such a fun time doing it.
What advice do you have for the younger grade?
Do the stuff you love, and don’t care about what other people think. Follow your dreams, and don’t care about other people’s opinions.
